Sponsor drops Ben Shapiro after plug at anti-abortion rally

A sponsor has severed ties with right-wing podcast host Ben Shapiro after he read an ad for the company during a controversial appearance at this week’s March for Life rally.

“Our mission is to make good oral health more accessible to everyone, and podcast advertising is one way we’re able to do this,” read a statement from Quip.

The company went on to note that an ad was delivered in a venue it “did not endorse” and as a result will be pulling its ads from Shapiro’s show.

“We are also taking steps to ensure all of our advertising partners are aligned with our oral health mission and values,” Quip concluded.

Shapiro’s appearance at Friday’s rally sparked some backlash on social media, particularly for his assertion that “no pro-life person would kill baby Hitler.”
